Unit 6 Understand child and young person’s development. 09.09.13 Review A child's development usually follows a known and predictable course. The acquisition of certain skills and abilities is often used to gauge such development. Children will reach milestones at certain ages throughout their development, if a child does not seem to be achieving these areas of development this may be a concern and an area that needs special attention. From birth to 19 years a child should achieve a number of significant development areas, these are determined by a sequence of development and the rate of development.
Understand the expected pattern of development for children and young people birth – 19 years. 2. Understand the factors that influence children and young people’s development and how these affect practice. 3. Understand how to monitor children and young people’s development and interventions that should take place if this is not following expected pattern 4.
These goals are important as they form the building blocks for children’s later education and they make available the basis for planning and learning throughout the EYFS. The aim is that each child can meet the goals by the end of their reception year. However, some children would have exceeded the goals whilst others may still be working towards the goals by the end of the EYFS. The seven arears of learning and development mentioned above are: Communication and language- This is about the child listening and attention, understanding, and speaking. Physical development- How children gain control of their bodies, use equipment’s successfully and how they learn to use equipment.
Tip Although babies start eating solids by 6 months, they may still need to be caressed while going to sleep. Some babies also need comfort nursing to induce sleep. If you see your sleepy-eyed munchkin crying even after being fed and changed, chances are - He/she needs comfort nursing! 10 to 12 Months The awake time is considerably increased at this age. By this time, most babies take just 1-2 naps a day, which last for 1-2 hours and they sleep for about 10-12 hours through the night.
Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. The EYFS Statutory Framework sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life. The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework is mandatory for all early years providers (from 1 September 2012): maintained schools, non-maintained schools, independent schools, and all providers on the Early Years Register. The EYFS has three main sections * The learning and development requirements * Assessment * The safeguarding and Welfare requirements The learning and development requirements There are seven areas of learning and development that must shape educational programmes in early years settings.
Understand Child and Young Person Development 1.1 EXPLAIN THE SEQUENCE AND RATE OF EACH ASPECT OF DEVELOPMENT OF CHILD FROM BIRTH TO 18 YEARS INTRODUCTION:- Child development refers to the biological and psychological and emotional changes that occur in human beings between birth and the end of adolescence, as the individual progresses from dependency to increasing autonomy. Because these developmental changes may be strongly influenced by genetic factors and events during prenatal life, genetics and prenatal development are usually included as part of the study of child development. Related terms include developmental psychology, referring to development throughout the lifespan, and pediatrics, the branch of medicine relating to the care of children. Developmental change may occur as a result of genetically-controlled processes known as maturation, or as a result of environmental factors and learning, but most commonly involves an interaction between the two. It may also occur as a result of human nature and our ability to learn from our environment.

Unit 4227-022 Understanding child and young person development 1.1 Children grow continually, develops and learns from birth to adulthood. A child’s development can be measured through social, emotional, intellectual, physical and language development milestones. Most of the children follows the same pattern of development during different growth stages in their life. However, each child will develop at a different rate across different areas. Aspects or areas of development classified as Physical development, Social and emotional development, intellectual development and language development.
1) Identify the areas of child development and write briefly about each one. Child development is a process every child goes through, and each stage of development child is learning in several areas at the same time. Children develop these skills in five main areas of development: S - Social development P- Physical development I - Intellectual development C- Communication development E- Emotional development Social Development: It involves the development of the social skills of the child, how child interacts with others. The child’s identity, their relationships with others and understanding their place within a social environment. Physical Development: As the child grows change occurs in their bodies in mean of body shape, their strength to do the different task, the change in size, shape, and physical maturity of the body which includes physical abilities and coordination.
